Weak memory concurrency

Lectures given at the Master Parisien de Recherche en Informatique, 2011.

Part of the Semantics, languages and algorithms for multicore programming course, in collaboration with Albert Cohen and Luc Maranget.

  • Slides on hardware models.
  • The ppcmem tool to explore the Power/ARM memory model (and some tests).
  • Slides on programming language models.
  • Slides on the C++11 memory model and on verifying fence elimination optimisations.

NEW: Francesco Zappa Nardelli proposes one internship for 2011/2012:

  1. Safe optimisations for high-level concurrent programming languages;
while Albert Cohen proposes two interships for 2011/2012.
